Alleged Cause of the Rivers Political Crisis

Chief Anabs Sara-Igbe, a Rivers state elder statesman and Ijaw leader, on December 16, alleged that root cause of the Rivers political crisis was the mismanagement of the Rivers state internally generated revenue (IGR) by officers in Fubara’s government who are loyalist of former governor Nyesom Wike.

He stated, “What is the problem? Wike has come to tell the world that he was fighting Sim because Sim wanted to take his structure. What is the structure six months after elections; we are not close to elections, so what has structure got to do?

“Let me tell you about the structure; before Wike left government, the state was making over N10bn internally generated revenue (monthly). When he left, the IGR came down to N6bn. And the governor, a former Accountant General of the state, asked questions and in the process he engaged somebody to look at the books, and the commissioner of finance reported to Wike and the former governor got angry. That is the structure.

Before the intervention of President Tinubu, the crisis has resulted in the demolition of the state assembly complex and the decamping of 27 members of the state assembly.
